9 reading passages covering Colonial Apprenticeships, and six Colonial Craftsmen: Blacksmiths, Carpenters, Wheelwrights, Basket Weavers, Coopers, and Chandlers. Colonial Tradesmen and Craftsmen were the backbone of the American Colonies. Craftsmen were responsible for growing the colonies by building structures, making tools, crafting furniture, and creating goods and products that made everyday life possible. Classroom and enrichment activities keep students engaged as they learn. Great for use by substitute teachers, or for homeschooling or co-ops!
